FortyoneFortyone - Music That's Better Than It Sounds [csr041] (2004)

something has gone horribly wrong 8-p
Prefer flash? · Embed · Questions/Feedback?

Welcome to Music That's Better Than It Sounds. Honestly. This is new art from old art. 100% Samples. And futhermore;

I have a PC microphone propped up to one of the speakers of my stereo, into which I have a Raidoshack Optimus SSM-1750 mixer hooked, and into the mixer I have two Technics turntables and a Panasonic REAL 3DO video game system (which functions as a CD player) hooked, and speaking of hooked I'm just that to making this music. To sample cassette tapes, television, and VHS tapes I'll unplug the first PC mic, plug in a second one, and place it up to a boombox or the 14 inch televison that I have sitting on top of the stereo. I've also sampled randomly from a shortwave radio and get a lot of stuff and most of the drum loops from various free sites on the internet. The overwhelming majority of the samples come from vinyl with the majority of that being childrens.

I usually make one track a day and complete an entire album in about a month, and the tracks appear on the albums in the order they are made. This album was created between March 15th, 2004 (10:22 PM EST) and May 14th, 2004 (12:12 AM EST). There was a huge lull in there when I was not working on any music due to my beloved late grandmother being in the hospital and this (CSR041) is lovingly dedicated to her. I love you Gam.

As for you dear listener, please! feel free to share your thoughts about this work or anything else and to inquire about receiving free copies of all my other albums: freelove41@earthlink.net

Special thanks to my family, the computer, the turntables, the stereo, the mixer, the microphone, the 3DO, the boombox, television, VCR, headphones, my chair, my house, my automobile, food, oxygen, water, electricity, the internet, the producers, artists, writers, and preformers of all the material I've sampled, Dionysus, Saturn, Lao Tzu, Alan Watts, yin, yang, Midas, the Zorch, Edison, novelty, bran flakes, Otis, and of course all the magical childrens records.

You're it.

Beautifully crafted.
